There was an interesting train robbery in the crime-ridden and gang-infested shit-hole that is Oakland, CA on Saturday night.

At about 9:30 p.m. a group of about 50 juveniles jumped the fare gates, mobbed an incoming train at the Coliseum station, and robbed a number of passengers, thumping a few of them in the process. The program went on for about five minutes. No weapons were in obvious sight. Most of the robberies were of cell phones, though at least one purse and one duffle bag were also taken. At the time of the attack there were BART police officers on robbery suppression patrol in the back parking lot. By the time they got the word and got there the mob had left the scene and blended into the local area.

BART has refused to release surveillance footage due to the fact that the suspects are all believed to be juveniles. A significant number of the train cameras are known to be dummies though there were working cameras on some of the train cars. Also, if I remember correctly, all of the platforms have cameras.
